Byline: Euan McArthur

CRAIG LEVEIN last night urged Dundee United fans to make Tannadice a sea of Tangerine tonight - and roar their side to victory.

The Arabs boss is relishing the prospect of the home fans vastly outnumbering the paltry travelling support who're staying away in protest at not being allowed free entry for the rescheduled clash.

Levein said:"It's a great thing our fans will outnumber the Rangers supporters. It's maybe not the best news financially but from the playing side it's good.

"It's not very often you will be able to play the Old Firm and outnumber their supporters by five or six to one.

"So it will mean a lot to our guys to go out and have the vast majority of the people in the stadium right behind them.

"I'd urge every United fan who can make it to come along and support the team." United have long since shrugged off any inferiority complex when it comes to facing the Old Firm since Levein took over and their gaffer insists they're in fine fettle for the visit of the Ibrox men with the best still to come.

Levein said:"These games are extra-special because there are not too many points between the sides and it's live on TV so it's a real occasion. We're going into it hopeful and confident and we deserve to because we've been doing okay lately.

"I'm disappointed we didn't win on Saturday because that was a chance to go into this match only two points behind.

"But what we're trying to do is hang in there and as I keep saying, we'll get stronger as the season goes on.

"We've seen Scott Robertson and Jon Daly come backwhile Francisco Sandzaza is starting training again and should be doing the full work by next month."
